Mitsubishi Shogun Breeding With a Clear Purpose In 1982 Mitsubishi Motors Corporation launched a brand new breed of car: a 4x4 which was tough enough to go where others feared to tread yet enjoyed the sort of sophisticated specification more normally associated with top end saloons. Thirty years later the Shogun is an icon – long-time, long-term favourite of those who live on the other side of the hill and make real pack-horse/ tow-truck/mud-plugging demands of their vehicle on a regular basis. Of course the Shogun has changed considerably since the early days, but the principle has never varied: to this day it remains a dyed-in-the-wool, no-holds-barred, authentic off-roader, built to outlast the opposition if not the owner. Indulgent yet practical it is superb value for money, unbeatable for loading, lugging and pulling heavy objects, and absolutely unstoppable in the wild. A Full-on 4x4 The technical superiority of its drivetrain, four-wheel independent suspension and stability and traction control systems have been honed in the extreme conditions of cross-country rallying and its phenomenal reliability has been proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, time and time again. No less than seventy percent of all new Shoguns are bought by former Shogun owners – perhaps you should find out why. Reliability As Standard When you really need a 7 seat 4x4; you really need a Mitsubishi Shogun. It’s crammed with rugged, reliable technology and a diehard work ethic. The Shogun is also there when you need worry free motoring. Perfect Balance Probably the biggest 4-cylinder engine in any production car, the Shogun's punchy, double overhead camshaft, 16-valve, turbocharged and intercooled, 3.2 litre, direct injection diesel engine has always provided masses of low-down torque yet never runs out of power in the mid-range. And now its even better - much better. It is quieter, it is more economical, and it is cleaner: in fact, it is cleaner and more economical than any other authentic 4x4 you can buy.
